Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Mixed (short coat). I’m a very special boy who has already become a shelter favorite with everyone he meets! Though I might be a little older than your average shelter doggie, I have personality for days! When I first arrived at Second Chance, I was missing most of my fur from a skin infection, and was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease. A few more tests determined that I’m actually Cushings free! I do have a little bit of arthritis in my spine and right knee, and seem to be mostly deaf, but I get around just fine, and manage very well with an anti-inflammatory. Now that my skin feels better, my beautiful white locks are coming back in, making me extra handsome! I know once you meet me you’ll see for yourself- I am a perfect little guy, who’s looking for his perfect human!

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.

More About Mutt Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Schnauzer / Cairn Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). You might be able to tell from my photos alone that I’m one of the most handsome doggies here. I was rescued because I was “too fearful” for adoptions at the large city shelter I was at before Second Chance. My first few days here, I didn’t want to do much of anything, and it was clear that I would need some more time to settle in…. now that I’ve been here for a couple of weeks, my amazing personality is coming out more and more each day. I would do best in a quieter home, as I’m still a little suspicious of things I’m not accustomed to. I love to climb in the lap of my favorite people, and though I wasn’t sure what a leash was when I arrived, I’m getting braver and braver with it every time I go out! I know my new family might not get to see all of my cute quirks at first, but I know with a little patience, I’ll be a great doggie for them! Do you think I could be the one for you?

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). My sister and I were rescued from a large city shelter where we were terrified out of our minds! We were both nearly hairless, due to an allergy to fleas and poor care. We were a little shy when we first arrived at Second Chance, but it didn’t take long at all for us to come out of our shells! I am the smaller of the pair, and a little more reserved than my sister Edna. I’m already growing back most of my fur, and feeling more and more confident each day! I would make a wonderful companion for another doggie, as I always snuggle up next to my sister for cuddles at the end of the day. If you’re looking for a low key girl who just wants lots of lap time, I might be just the one for you. Come meet me today and I know you won’t regret it!

I went straight to foster care after I was rescued, where my foster family went to work trying to fatten me up a little bit! I fit in perfectly with the other dogs in the home, and would make a great companion for another dog. Second Chance learned after saving me that I was heartworm positive too. Luckily my friends here at the shelter have already put me through treatment, and I’m happy to say I’m feeling better than every! I’m gaining weight well, and starting to feel better, too, now that I’ve got the right medication for my hypothyroidism. Now all I need is a great family to adopt me, and I’ll be the happiest shepherd around! I might be a little older than your average shelter pup, but I know I have so much left to offer a family.
